Erode East bypolls: Confusion continues in opposition AIADMK camps as BJP delays decision on support
The opposition AIADMK's discomfiture is likely to work in favour of the ruling DMK-backed Congress candidate, E V K S Elangovan, in the by-election. Meanwhile, AMMK leader T T V Dhinakaran, whom Palaniswami and Panneerselvam expelled from the AIADMK, is hectically campaigning for his party candidate Shiva Prasanth, who is contesting on the Pressure Cooker symbol.
